Dane DeHaan to play Harry Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2

News Ryan Lambie 3 Dec 2012 - 22:33

Director Marc Webb has confirmed Dane DaHaan will play Harry Osborn in the sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man...

Although not yet a household name, actor Dane DeHaan has already proved his acting talent as the troubled teen Andrew in Josh Trank's superb Chronicle, and as the vulnerable moonshine maker Cricket in John Hillcoat's period drama Lawless.

Now, it seems that DeHaan's fame will grow further, as director Marc Webb has announced that the young actor will be playing Harry Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. In Sam Raimi's trilogy of Spider-Man movies, Osborn was played by James Franco, so the casting of DeHaan could provide an interesting, potentially darker contrast, and we'll be intrigued to see how his character will play alongside Andrew Garfield's take on Peter Parker.

It's early days for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 yet, but we'll be bringing you plenty more about the movie as it comes in.
